Hi Gregory,

The expression Cases[myNewList, v_ /; VectorQ[v, Negative]] will do it.

In[1]:=
myList = RandomInteger[{-5, 5}, {20}]

myNewList = Split[myList, #1*#2 > 0 & ]

Cases[myNewList, v_ /; VectorQ[v, Negative]]

Out[1]=
{-3, -5, 0, -2, 4, -1, -5, -3, -1, 0, -1, 4, 1, -3, 1, -3, 5, 4, 3, 5}

Out[2]=
{{-3, -5}, {0}, {-2}, {4}, {-1, -5, -3, -1}, {0}, {-1}, {4, 1}, {-3},
{1}, {-3}, {5, 4, 3, 5}}

Out[3]=
{{-3, -5}, {-2}, {-1, -5, -3, -1}, {-1}, {-3}, {-3}}

Regards,
Jean-Marc
